Chinese Double Fangyi Bronze from the Shang dynasty



There are only a few known of these double Fangyi bronzes, the first known one came from the Tomb of Fu Hao in 1976 after being dug up, it was buried for over 3000 years -

                                                  Here is a picture of Fu Hao`s Double Fangyi Bronze below...

As you can see the first double Fangyi in the Severson` collection is in better condition, they both have the Owl on front and around the sides, they both have other motifs as well, they have the famous dragon and a strange animal maybe a Tapir. The Owl is rather Rare and stands for the Soul

Here are other pictures of Severson`s Double Fangyi
